receipts and sending them to var

traordinary, that a large mass of
receipt-making was left as a legacy
for subsequent days. Many tax
payers even in the county did not
come to the office but took ad
vantage of the lists of taxes sent
into the precincts by Sheriff Bur
nett and remitted their taxes by
mail. The clearing up of this
business is now faking a lot of
